GLYDER (2005)

Supposedly a promo sampler album but with legendary producer Chris Tsangarides at the helm the sound is top notch. This young Irish four piece successfully mix a modern rock sound with a good dose of classic rock a la Thin Lizzy.

In fact if Thin Lizzy were still going today (I know there is the Sykes/Gorham version but without Phil Lynott it will never be a true Thin Lizzy) I reckon they would sound not unlike this album. Some cracking tunes on here including opener ''Saving Face' and 'You Won't Bring Me Down', both mix catchy guitar riffs and melodic choruses.

'She's Got It' is a classic rocker (in fact the opening guitar passage sounds at times like AC/DC's 'Thunderstruck'!). The Thin Lizzy vibe pervades over 'Colour Of Money' whilst 'Takin' Off' hits a catchy groove.

Definitely a band who are worthy of further investigation and although they have a Thin Lizzy sound at times (mainly in the vocals and bass lines), the band are not mere copycats. Live the band are tighter than a gnat's chuff as well. A band worthy of your further attention.
